Good. So I haven't missed the olive oil left.

This and some of that shocking green olive oil on a small plate with some toasted french bread is one of the pleasures in life not to be missed.

Like other long-time wooters, I'm in for 2. I'd be in for more if they'd let me.

Yet. Not left. Left doesn't make any sense.

We're on page 5, so we probably don't need anymore praise for this. But I'll do it anyway. Love this stuff, for the price it's the best you're going to find. I've bought three in the past and would totally buy more right now if I didn't still have a full bottle in the wine cellar and a half full one in the cabinet.

It is the PERFECT tenderizer for tougher steak marinades (I usually pour a very small amount in the center and marinate in red wine). And amazing drizzled over fresh mozzarella.

How is this not gone yet?!? I missed it the past 2 years and was so upset (I even tried to watch the wootoffs). In for 2. Might ask my boyfriend to pick up 2 more.

I bought this for my dad two years ago and he still uses it sparingly, but loves it. Excellent with fresh sliced mozzarella and basil!

I wish he needed another bottle so I could just buy him another one this year and be done with it.

This stuff is amazing. I have an entire unopened box from last time when it was hinted that it may be the last appearance on woot. I don't mind the price increase and got another. Perhaps I have a better taste for vinegar than wine, but I find this the best bang-for-my-buck on woot. And that is 40 dollars for a bottle of vinegar! It makes so many dishes that much better. A bottle of wine never lasts a day, and a bottle of this lasts for a good bit of a year, which helps.

So many great reviews... in for two! Maybe will give one to my brother-in-law at Christmas. Then again, maybe not.

For the amount you receive, this is a bit too pricey. It is very good, but not that good. For 250 ml, twenty dollars it would be more tempting.

I was only going to buy one but right before I clicked the big yellow button, I noticed a review. Glad I did because I changed my mind and ordered 2. I've only tried the cheap grocery store stuff so I'm looking forward to vinegar-vana.

This is what I'm thinking. All the local specialty Olive Oil stores sell 18-yr balsamic in 375ml bottles for about $16-$18.

Can this really be better than those for twice the price and less volume?

I'm not talking grocery-store balsamic here, either.

Thank you to everyone that replied to my post regarding my impatience on the wine delivery.

BUT.... I'M THIRSTY NOW, DAGNABIT!! :D :D

You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.

But since you're probably not going to do that for this offer, please list all the data here.

Thanks.



I'm going to chime in as well. It outright confuses me why woot never does this.

Thankfully I checked woot today. I almost didn't and would have missed out on my beloved balsamic. I've been rationing what I had left from my previous order last year. Yahoo in for two! And no I am not sharing with anyone so my family better not even ask, lol.

Serious Q:
Can I double order? I already purchased two, for gifting, and I have two more people that will be pissed off when they find out /they/ didn't get the awesome balsamico like Fred and Ethel.

You should be able to "gift" two to yourself. Just slightly change your address.

I don't want to be a skeptic, but genuine balsamic 18 years old in 100 ml generally runs over $100.

Some people, let's say, might open a 2nd woot account and use a different payment method in that type of circumstance.

Skepticism is healthy! And I also say "no way" to these "real" 18 year old claims.

Since it seems you guys imported an entire container load this year, why didn't you let us buy three?

Oh! Oh!! So excited! My memory of the last time I had this vinegar & the olio nuovo together is so great that it completely overshadows the fact that I broke my arm that night. Seriously, it's that good.

I know I won't get to taste it in time for this offer, but this seems to come up fairly often so if I like it I could get it next time.

Just can't bring myself to spend the money without trying it first.



I live in NYC. This is the 1st time I have bought this. Anyway, if you're in the city, let me know (send PM) and we'll have some wine and the balsamic on something.

The Cavedoni Botte Piccola Italian Balsamic is why you get everyone in your family to create their own Woot account, and then you have each of them order the limit.

Yes, it's THAT good.

Buy some of the CasaDeCase Olio Nuovo. Pour some into a small saucer. Add several generous dashes of the Cavedoni Botte Piccola Italian Balsamic. Serve with small chunks of rosemary bread (to dip into the oil/balsamic) and slices of theVella Cheese Co. Dry Monterey Jack Cheese.

We live on that nice little snack. -)

We can cellar 545 bottles here at home. This means we must quickly consume the other 436 bottles on hand...

I can guarantee you god had nothing to do with it. WD probably had to buy a huge lot for one reason or another. I mean when was the last time WW sent an email out telling you to go buy the daily deal because it will sell out quickly..

So if you want to thank anyone, it's probably WD you should thank.

This isn't bitter; it's got an acidic bite, but it's on the sweet side = probably not so good.

I'd say make it just like you would with garlic, basil, and VOO and use giant chunks of fresh mozzarella. When it's done cooking, take it out, and drizzle the balsamic over it in a wavy pattern. Let rest, covered for a minute or two to let the balsamic heat up and mingle a bit, and I'd bet it would be practically cocaine at that point.

Fresh tomatoes wouldn't go wrong too.
